‘la Casa Magica’ (la Casa De José Bentancor) - Museum Punta del Diablo - Uruguay

The brainchild of local artist José Bentancor, this bright yellow house in the shape of a face is worth a visit if you fancy seeing something on the unusual side. Built in 2010 by Bentancor and his sons, the house features eye-shaped cut glass bottles for its windows, balconies as its ears and even an entranceway in the shape of a tongue. A tour introduces you to the artist himself, who talks through his work while sipping on his mate. At the time of writing, further work was planned on the land behind the house. It is both unique and fascinating.
